OVERVIEW

How Remote Access VPN works

While VPN technology isn’t new, Remote Access VPN as a service is a modern network security solution for everyday business needs. Your teams need to work safely from anywhere, anytime, and on any device. A Remote Access VPN creates an encrypted tunnel between your organization’s resources, endpoint devices on the network, and the employees using them — shielding all online activity from outside users, and safeguarding sensitive areas of the network.

A VPN works to mitigate the risk of internal data breaches, facilitate the remote workforce, and defend against malicious attacks. As part of a robust security solution - like NordLayer - Remote Access VPNs for business offer a flexible and cost-effective way for companies to secure their remote teams, address their ad-hoc needs, and protect critical assets.

Frequently asked questions

By utilizing AES-256 bit encryption, NordLayer’s solution creates a secure tunnel between endpoints — effectively blocking all traffic from outside the network.

Remote access is a byproduct of a secure connection to an internal network from an external one. In simple terms: by using a VPN, you can securely access files, sites, and apps remotely.

NordLayer office and Remote Access VPN offers three types of tunneling protocols. These are:

  • IPSec/IKEv2 - A dependable, stable option - especially when moving between different networks.
  • OpenVPN (UDP) - A good combination of speed and security, but it may not work on all networks.
  • OpenVPN (TCP) - A secure and reliable protocol - although slower than UDP, TCP works on the vast majority of networks.

There is no one protocol more secure than another — they all offer pros and cons of different varieties, though. Please refer to the question above.

A site-to-site VPN creates an encrypted tunnel from one network to a remote site — think about it like this: a connection between a file server in the office and a user sitting at home. A site-to-site VPN only allows for one connection at a time

Conversely, a Remote Access VPN allows multiple users to connect to a private network in order to access the resources and services of your company. It’s beneficial for businesses that have multiple remote employees.
